"7" as written by and Alex Turner....
Well, I wrote my number down.
I'd never wrote it down before.
I was gonna bring over like something from a film but
I didn't have the bottle at all.

Well I had a look and you kept staring.
Your head pairing up with mine
Cos your so pretty and I'm so shy.
You proper did give me the eye though im sure you did
Well I went outside, couldn't say i tried.
And I felt regret.
But in a flash yeah i'd dashed back in.
Cos the ship had'nt sailed yet.

And when i did I couldn't see your face
I could see your mates but that wouldn't do.
I dashed around to find you
But you were nowhere to be seen
Oh no no

na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na nooooo

Well yeah she flew away.
She seemed like weeks or months away.
(missing lines)

Yeah but i learned my lesson though.
Your so pretty and i'm so shy

    My InterpretationWhat this song is about is about someone, a man let's say, seeing someone attractive in a club/bar etc.,a woman, and wanting to give her person his number but he doesn't have the courage.

    Even though they both keep exchanging looks nothing is done about it. Just as he is leaving the bar/club he starts to have regrets about not giving her his number so he finds the courage and goes back in to find her and give her his number because it isn't too late.

    However when he goes back in to find her all he can see is her friends and not her, because they aren't as pretty (in his opinion) in comparison to her he runs around trying to find her to no prevail.

    The though of this woman gets stuck in the man's mind and he can't stop thinking about the ifs and maybes of the situation.
